TECHSPEC Uncoated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses

TECHSPEC Uncoated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses Any of our lenses with a diameter of 5mm or greater can be specified with blackened edges. To specify the blackening, simply append a –INK to the BBAR coated stock number.
  • Wavelength Range of 400-2200nm
  • Precision Diameter and Centration Tolerances Allow for Easy OEM Integration
  • Wide Variety of Diameters, Focal Lengths, and Coatings
  • Anti-Reflection Coating Options: VIS-EXTMgF2, VIS 0°, VIS-NIR, YAG-BBARNIR I, and NIR II

TECHSPEC® Uncoated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses are designed to bend parallel input rays to diverge from one another on the output side of the lens causing this lens to have a negative focal length. These lenses can be used for balancing aberrations created by other lenses within a system due to their negative spherical aberration. Plano-Concave (PCV) lenses are commonly used in a variety of applications including image reduction, beam expansion and telescopes. TECHSPEC® Uncoated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses offer optimal performance in the 350nm to 2200nm range.  These lenses are also available VIS-EXTMgF2VIS 0°VIS-NIRYAG-BBARNIR I, or with NIR II AR coating options.
